How academically gifted are you?
Posted 4/7/08 , edited 7/26/08
How academically gifted are you? Feel free to post test scores, awards, honors, accomplishments, etc. Don't worry about grades because they don't really measure intelligence. Do you think your life is easier or harder because of your intelligence? BTW I say academically gifted because I believe there are different kinds of gifts (musical,artistic,etc.).

My 7th grade ACT scores- Reading (31) English (26) Science (23) Math (16:() Composite (24). The 31 in the reading section qualified me for the Duke Talent Identification Program's (Duke TIP) State and Grand Recognition ceremonies. That's probably my biggest accomplishment. I've also.scored in the 99% percentile or exceeded in pretty much all of my grade level standardized tests. Plus, I was in the SAGE program from elementary through middle school. It's allegedly a school program for the gifted (some of the classes were actaully easier than the regular classes). I also have a lot of honor rolls, course awards, and academic awards. Next year, I'm going to apply to a program that allows you to enter college early, and if I get accepted I'll be in college at 16.

Edit: I recently found out that I got a 5 on my AP Human Geography exam. Still in disbelief, but hey, college credit

I know what some of you are thinking. "They're just showing off," "They're full of themselves," etc. That's not my purpose, I just want to know about the other gifted folks on CR, that's all.

Gak. I'm not what you call a "straight-A" student. I have lots of B's... more than A's. And some C's. Hehehehe.

Rubic cube doesn't really relate to your Academic Gift.

To be honest. I not really... Academically gift

Exactly! People assume I'm smart b/c I have good grades, but the only key to good grades is work--and sometimes studying.
